    Brake caliper restoration

    Any recommendations for brake restoration ( calipers ) mostly. Including Europe. Or, are reproductions a good alternative, when available. Thanks, cliff

    +1 for PMB. Great work and good prices. They did a set of 356C calipers for me and they were impressive.

    Don't know in europe, but to my knowledge some members from europe send their calipers to Eric at PMB to be refurbished.

    I've used jl-parts.de to restore my SC brakes, very happy with the results. in typical German fashion, there were even pressure tests for each caliper.
    They also restore 930 and aluminium S calipers.
